Blood: A Southern Fantasy
The War Amongst the Angels
...Continues the adventures of the von Bek Family, of Captain Quelch and Sundry Other Characters from Blood: A Southern Fantasy.
Fabulous Harbours Explores the myths and dictats by which the twentieth century lives with Rose von Bek - the Angel of Sporting Club Square herself. She will escort you across a world as fabulous and exotic as any you could ever wish to visit. She moves from the high seas to the far Sahara, seeking the Grail in a thousand forms, encountering among others the Wandering Jew and the famous Clapham Antichrist...

Life is a river and each of our myriad destinies a tributary which itself created tributaries, which in turn creates tributaries. That is the nature of Chaos, forever creative, forever fecund, forever unchecked.
Rose von Bek travels many of London's byways glimpsing many lives and many worlds. At times she meets with knights of the road Dick Turpin and Colonel Jack, a man better known to his mukhamirim fellows as plain Sam Oakenhurst. Othertimes with Prince Lobkowitz, or her mother Nellia, in Begg Mansions, Sporting Club Square.
But London is only one of the many scales of existence awaiting the adventurous young Rose. One of them, perhaps Las Cascadas - pinioned twixt brisk Atlantic and seductive Mediterranean - or the Lost Pines Ranch, Texas, home to her eccentric uncle, will surely bring her back to the nefarious Caption Horatio Quelch, pirate of the Singularity, enemy of her kind...
Ultimately the great war between Law and Chaos, which some call the War in Heaven, spills over into all realms of existence. And the final battle of battles is fought to determine the nature of reality itself.
